Plaza Muñoz Gamero Tours

This historic town square is among the most popular destinations in the Magallanes Region because of its unmistakable energy and close proximity to some of Punta Arenas’ major attractions. Travelers can easily walk from Plaza Munoz Gamero to Casa Braun-Menendez, the Sociedad Menendez Behety and the local cathedral, and many visitors agree that the best handmade crafts in town can be found here.

Walking the plaza takes only a few minutes, but most visitors gather at park benches or relax in the shade of trees to take in the sights and sounds of local life. Local folklore states kissing the statue of Magellan’s feet is good luck, so visitors looking to change their fortune should be sure to do so before leaving the plaza. A central information center also offers travelers maps and recommendations, making this a perfect first stop on a trip to Punta Arenas. 

Practical Info

Sociedad Menendez Behety is located on the east side of the square, and beautiful old mansions can be found to the plaza’s north. Travelers looking to explore the stalls of local vendors and shop for handmade crafts should arrive any time before dusk, when merchants close up shop and head home for the evening.
